Default Re: DxO Mark - new way to compare camera quality

It's very interesting, but unfortunately I don't think it's 100% useful.

As far as I can tell they don't seem to have any measure of how much detail the sensor/system is capable of rendering; i.e. the effective per pixel sharpness.

SNR and FullColorSensitivity are heading in that direction, but I don't think they quite cover it, and none of the other measurements seem to either.

At the end of the day I'm pretty certain someone could create a sensor that would get perfect scores in *all* those tests, but produce completely terrible images anyway.
